The EC 6th Framework Integrated Project SafetyNet aims to accelerate the availability and use of harmonised road safety data in Europe. Having such data available throughout Europe would be tremendously beneficial for road safety, since it would enable the evaluation of road safety measures, the comparison of road safety status within and between countries, and the accelerated sharing of best practice in road safety policy. One of the macroscopic road safety related areas that SafetyNet focuses on concerns safety performance indicators (SPI). Such variables indicate road safety by looking at the operational state of the road traffic system. The indicator areas looked at by SafetyNet are: alcohol and drug use, speeding, protective systems, daytime running lights, vehicles (passive safety), roads, and trauma management. In an iterative manner, the SafetyNet SPI team has developed theoretically sound, yet practically feasible indicators, and has obtained the relevant data - or information about their availability - from the 27 cooperating countries (25 member states, Norway and Switzerland) ]. Hakkert, Gitelman and Vis (2007) present the theoretical framework and the developed safety performance indicators. The current report presents, for each country studied, the relevant available data. In a third report, the theory is applied to this data to obtain the indicator values and the different countries are compared to the extent possible.
